We ate at this restaurant as part of our river cruise, so the menu was fixed. The restaurant served dumpling soup, roast pork, broccoli, and spaetzlel. Dessert was warm berries and ice cream. Overall it was very good.

This charming beer house is decorated in the traditional Germany style. Located in the old town of Passau, it offered a full menu of authentic German cuisine. We had a very enjoyable meal and a wonderful time.

We had lunch here as part of a large group which had been fitted in at short notice, and I had the impression this is something they're used to. Certainly the ambience was good (out in the courtyard, natural shade) and the food was interesting and pleasant (it was very Bavarian i.e. not really for dieters or vegetarians). Service was...

Went with some friends to this authentic Bavarian restaurant. Service was very good. Waiter was attentive and was eager to offer suggestions. Ordered the following dishes (all good);venison, boiled beef, pike-perch, boiled beef, weiner schnitzel. Good local beer selection. Ate inside but the outside seating location looked better.

Went there with a large party after a concert in the Dom, so we had a limited menu. I had a Weiner Schnitzel, with roast vegetables and my wife had a roast chicken breast. Both were very well prepared and were very tasty. Despite the large party (we filled three rooms) the service was quick, refills were quickly available on... More

This restaurant is a trifle hard to find since it has not much signage out front to identify it. But once found, it turned out to be an excellent restaurant with great ambiance! We chose to be seated in an open air garden-like courtyard with grape vines, flowers, birds etc. Charming place! Waiter was excellent in all respects. My wife... More

Prices are quite reasonable, we had a noodle dish and a trout boiled in wine one night and the roast suckling pig and Bavarian Roast Pork with... More

Recommended by our guide this restaurant turned out to be a real gem. Had A delightful lunch in a cozy, leafy, garden. The local draft beer and weiner schnitzel were first rate with ample portions. Fellow diners all appeared to be locals which underscored that this is a find.
